Cancer Screening

Woman attending screening unit at Mile End Hospital

Working alongside local people to increase take up of breast, cervical and bowel cancer screening services, this project aims to reduce cancer mortality rate by early diagnosis of cancers.

  • Trains local people in screening process and practices
  • Supports local people to take up the screening offer
  • Works with GP’s to increase uptake in cervical and breast screening
  • Delivers awareness sessions to local people around screening processes

This work has enabled Tower Hamlets and City and Hackney to increase their coverage of breast cancer screening towards the national target.

I really would like to thank her (SAfH Staff) for her time, effort and understanding and I hope you employ more people with her demeanour and attitude in the future, it makes such a difference.
